    Hello

    I want to play videos from the front row interface but I have them stored on an external HD and front row seems to want them placed in the movies folder in my home directory. Any easy way around this?

    Cheers

    Tim

    A symbolic link from ~/Movies to the folder on the external drive?

    You don't need to use a symlink. You can just drop an alias into your Movies folder and Front Row will honour it (according to MacOSXHints.com).
